    Just finished dinner-Grilled salmon & halibut- it had ,of course, been frozen(almost 6 days) and Zucchinni Pancakes-a real nice way to use a few--we also make pickles-bread- grate and freeze some for winter-and give away what we can BUT most folks have enough to feed an army also.

    My wife has a great recipe for zucchini with left over baked potatoes.

    Dice equal portions of each, but keep separate.

    Saute the zucchini first in bacon grease, or any oil for about 5-10 minutes.

    My wife adds an onion to it, but last night I threw in a heap of garlic and a hot pepper along with whatever seasonings you like.

    After the zucchini starts to soften, add in the spuds and keep going until they brown.

    Top with shredded cheese.

    i tried this last year and it is great...just make sure you only cook long enough to warm up your sauce/ and melt the cheese. also precook the hamburg before adding..you want the zucchinni to cook but stay crunchy not mushy:(
